Review Sections Review Specs. Thank you soooo much! The solution I found for this problem, no kidding, please after closing the cam even with the error appearing,is to remove the battery off the cam keeped in on position. It all happened when I took a tape out to take the lock setting off and then when shutting the door again, it just didn’t do anything and ruined any filming possibilities. Hit the bottom several times. This will allow to seprate the LCD part from camcorder not entirely – so watch out for wires; but it makes the gap big enough for screwdrivers to enter. I put a new tape in and the door won’t close.

On the screen, it should say “re insert cassette” or something like that Each time, and over the years SONY was falling behind the wall of silence. At this point it does not want to return the cassette itself.
